Pikachu And Eevee Switch Bundles

Nintendo wants to make sure you fully enjoy the upcoming game, Pokémon: Let’s Go by releasing this yellowish bundle above.

There are two bundles for fans to enjoy, one each for the Pikachu and Eevee versions of the game. Each comes with a download code, a brown and yellow Joy-Con, decal decorated Switch dock, and the Poké Ball Plus peripheral that lets you pretend to capture Pokémon as if you were a real trainer. That last bit is $50 on its own, bringing the total price of the bundles to $400 USD.

 

 

Katamari Damacy coming to Switch

Katamari Damacy was always fun to play on the PlayStation system but now a remaster is heading to the Switch and with its joycon and online gameplay, its sure to be even more fun! The game is due out in Winter 2018.

Luigi’s Mansion 3

 

Nintendo did their fans a great service when they kicked off their Direct last week by announcing a new Luigi’s Mansion, which will be the third in the series and still has no official title. The game returns to its console home on the Switch and apparently will be taking place mostly in a large hotel mansion? Hopefully they stick with quality over quantity in this series, much like the first game.

 

Pending any delays, we’ll see the game sometime 2019.

Animal Crossing is Coming to the Nintendo Switch in 2019

At the end of yesterday’s Nintendo Direct, Nintendo revealed that Isabelle was going to be a fighter in Super Smash Bros Ultimate. This was a neat surprise for the most part, but also a bit of a disappointing one, especially given how the trailer seemingly showed off a new Animal Crossing title right up until the big reveal.
It was a bit of a tease for fans, and one that initially seemed like a Nintendo troll on par with Dedede’s appearance in K Rool’s debut trailer.

Fortunately, it turns out that wasn’t the case.

Oh no. Cause straight after Isabelle’s Smash reveal, Nintendo announced a whole new Animal Crossing game was in development for the Switch as well!

Yep. after many requests (and a fair bit of speculation), Nintendo officially revealed that a new Animal Crossing game was in development for the console, with a release date set for 2019. Here’s the ‘trailer’ with the announcement for the game:

Which doesn’t really have much to show off at all. You’ve got a logo, you’ve got a release date… and that’s basically it really. No gameplay footage, no information on new features, no music samples… all in all, it’s basically the same situation as with Metroid Prime 4. A big ‘trust us, it’s coming’ deal that leaves your imagination to fill in the blanks.

But hey, at least it’s official now. We may not have any actual information, but at least we know Animal Crossing is in development for the console and that the series will be getting more games on non-smartphone systems. That’s better than nothing at any rate.

So what do you think about it? Are you happy to see Animal Crossing get revealed for the Switch? What do you think the game will actually have in terms of new features, characters and mechanics?
